    A little off the subject a 1960s Italian movie was quite realistic about people - starred Marcello Mastrioni and Sophia Loren. She goes to the USSR to find her husband who is missing from WW2 on the Eastern Front. It was a good movie made by Italians, good acting, compelling story and movie did not indulge in standard cold war portrayals of the USSR's people.

      It was a joint USSR/Italian production, this explains it. Otherwise they would've exclusively filmed garbage dumps, poor old ladies and prison camps. How can you possibly sell a film about Russia to your audience if it won't be able to relish in its superiority over drunk subhumans oppressed by Communism?

      Here's the trailer

        There are actually two good movies on the subject of Italian soldiers on the Russian front. One is the above mentioned "I Girasoli / The Sunflowers" with Mastroianni and Loren, the other is "Italiani Brava Gente / Attack and Retreat".

        Among the actors there's even a very young Peter Falk (Columbo). And of course it's a joint production

          By the way, Russian movies portraying the wartime period were quite popular here in Italy, particularly "When Cranes Return", "Ivan's Childhood" and "Ballad of a Soldier" (the last one made my mother cry, and she was definitely not crying often)
